For those who've waged a battle against acne, the fight often doesn't end when the blemishes clear. Lingering acne scars can serve as unwanted reminders of the struggles endured, impacting self-esteem and confidence.
Enter Fraxel® laser resurfacing. At Westport MediSpa, we've harnessed the power of this innovative treatment to help countless clients rejuvenate their skin, diminish acne scars, and regain their confidence. This transformative procedure could be the solution you've been seeking.
Understanding acne scars
Acne scars are the result of inflammation within the skin brought on by acne. When the pore swells up, it causes a tear in the follicle wall that causes scar tissue to form. The skin then repairs these lesions by forming new collagen fibers, which can create a scar.
These scars often appear as deep pits or waves on the skin surface, which can be aesthetically displeasing and challenging to cover with makeup.
What is Fraxel laser resurfacing?
Fraxel laser resurfacing is a nonablative treatment that uses fractional laser technology to stimulate your skin's natural healing process. It does this by creating microinjuries in the skin, kickstarting collagen and elastin production — two proteins essential for skin elasticity and firmness. At Westport MediSpa, we customize the treatment to your specific skin needs, providing personalized care for optimum results.
How Fraxel works on acne scars
Fraxel laser treatment specifically targets the damaged skin cells in the acne scars, breaking them down so your body can naturally eliminate them. As new cells form, the texture of your skin begins to smooth out, diminishing the appearance of scars over time. This regenerative process is a fundamental reason why Fraxel is a trusted treatment.
What to expect during and after treatment
Fraxel treatments at Westport MediSpa are typically well-tolerated. You may feel a warm, prickling sensation during the procedure, but most clients describe it as minimal discomfort. Post-treatment, your skin might appear sunburned and feel tender, but this subsides within a few days. It's crucial to protect your skin from the sun after treatment as it can be more sensitive to UV rays.
After a series of treatments at Westport MediSpa, many clients notice a significant reduction in the appearance of their acne scars. It's important to note that results vary from person to person, depending on factors like the severity of the scars and the individual's skin healing ability. However, the goal remains the same: smoother, healthier, and clearer skin that radiates confidence.
The journey to reclaim your skin from the vestiges of acne can be life-changing. Fraxel laser resurfacing at Westport MediSpa offers a scientifically proven method to diminish acne scars and embrace a renewed sense of self.
